Last week we had an opportunity to share our learning and classroom with our whanau. On Wednesday, families were invited in from 8:30-9:30, as our kids made their way through a variety of the learning that we do in a day.
We built rockets together.
We shared the 3 ways to read a book we have been practising.
We practised counting as high as we could on the 100's board.
We practised our letter formation and shapes on the whiteboard, thinking about our Casey the Caterpillar language.
We practised reading our poems and noticing the words we have been learning.
We got creative and made art together.
We went outside with instruments and made some music!
We read some facts about planets and space to further our finding out stage of the inquiry.
This is just a snip-it of the types of things we do in the course of the day. It was fantastic to see the empowerment and confidence with which the kids were able to lead their whanau through their learning. In just 5 1/2 short weeks our kids have developed immensely and we were so proud to watch them share and celebrate their learning so far!
If you weren't able to make it, we have glued the scavenger hunt pages into our literacy books and you are welcome to pop in any morning from 8:30-9:00 to have your children show you some of what they get up to in a day in Autahi!
